Hello all. I am (almost) back from the JoCo cruise. I had a good time. Will update after I get through email. So see you in... a week? O.o
Hey Boston/Camberville people: do you like to ROCK? If so, you will not regret going to this show.

No, seriously. Trust me.

I plan to post periodic signal-boosts of the many great new artists I discovered on the JoCo cruise, and since I'm listening to her right now, I might as well start with one of my unexpected favorites. Jean Grae​ is hard to classify. While her live show, which was my introduction to her, was mostly hip hop she also has a beautiful, soulful singing voice, and as I've just found out, her one album so far (which has the excellent title "That's not how you do that either: Yet another instructional album for adults, by Jean Grae", is... something else entirely, and also great. I'm kinda in love with this track in particular:

If you ever get a chance to see her live, don't expect anything that sounds like this, but GO SEE HER. Hip hop isn't exactly my main genre, but I loved it, as much because of her amazing audience mojo, the likes of which I have never seen before (which is a lot coming from a Jason Webley fan) as the music. She holds an audience in the palm of her hand, and is just a damn lot of fun. Plus, if you get to talk to her later ask her to tell you the story of the crazy-long straw. :)
